The amount being reported as the fee to be paid by anyone in need of the latest French youngster to grow from the famed talent mill of Monaco KylianMbappe may be downright depressing.
Still suitors obsession with the young man is not far from valid justification
In leading the line of the team that managed to shame the elite club of France and the rest of the European free spenders that doing the dirty work of getting your studs down the mud of youths can still bring success, the 18-year old proved that he was one for the future.
As the summer wars linger around waiting for the transfer window to open, the figures flying around are sure not to go away quietly. What is mostly reported is the benchmark of€113 million tabled by Real Madrid.
When Alvaro Morata was brought back from Juventus last summer many expected him to be a great contributory factor in Zinedine Zidane’s first full season as coach.
Unfortunately for him, French man Benzema gave away little that showed he was ready to be displaced as their first choice No. 9. Still the Los Blancos know Benzema’s decline is around the corner hence are gathering up to make sure they have a swift transition in the center forward position.
Morata though seems to see things from another perspective and is currently contemplating on a move away from the Spanish club with Manchester United the likely destination.
No one would blame him. Should Mbappe end up at real Madrid, everyone knows that benching a player that cost over €100 million is the last thing Florentino Perez will tolerate from any one in charge of the squad. And that will mean more bench warmingsessions for Alvaro. He can’t have none of that anymore.
